Calprotectin & Secretory IgA Identify and calm increased inflammation
Inflammation inside the intestines is like inflammation you can see outside (such as redness or swelling from a scratch or cut on the skin). If your pet’s intestinal lining is inflamed and irritated, the immune system has to work harder to keep your pet’s gut functioning. By testing and measuring that level of inflammation you can target treatments like a new dog food, anti-inflammatory supplements, and possibly even medications when the inflammation is very high. Inflammation may be mild with no symptoms, or become severe and cause many symptoms if left untreated. Testing lets you see inside.
